When you are targeting someone, you should first know who you are planning to mess with. This is the first thing criminals do when they try to pick a target. Often times, they will pick on “easy” targets and will use stereotypes to do so. For example, bullies will often pick on the nerdy and smaller kid who doesn’t look like he can defend himself.
Muggers will often pick weaker looking individuals as their targets. With no ethics, they will snatch things from kids or the elderly. There are some people, who absolutely do not think about their actions, and will pick the wrong target to mess with.
